The COVID-19 pandemic has brought uncertainty to small business owners everywhere. Now and in the weeks and months ahead, your support of Dayton-area local restaurants and small businesses really matters. Supporting your favorite local restaurant has actually gotten a bit easier during the COVID-19 crisis, as many restaurants are offering takeout, delivery, or curbside pickup.

If you can, try to order a meal or pick up a coffee from a locally owned establishment at least once a week. Our intentional support during this time is what will ultimately rescue our local restaurants. is curating this list of local favorites and how you can enjoy their food at home.

A friendly, inviting restaurant or coffee shop creates a gathering place for neighborhoods. Having a local eatery that is “your spot” creates a real sense of community, and helps us all feel a little more connected. And with our support during this crisis, hopefully, “your spot” will be around for years to come.

If you have a favorite locally owned store or boutique, make plans to visit them as soon as you safely can – they’ve missed you as much as you’ve missed them. At Appliance Gallery, our showroom is now open with our Safe Health Standards in place.
